Available January to mid April (please call ahead in April)
Every winter, people flock to Parkesdale Farm Market from across the United States, even as far as Europe and Asia, just for a bowl of our World Famous Strawberry Shortcake! Served fresh from the fields, sweet sliced berries sit a top a bed of shortcake with a nice dollop of whipped cream.
Our shortcake has been an ever improving recipe to combine the tastes of the south with the appeal of the north for the perfect shortcake. A little like a biscuit with a touch of cake, our shortcake is just sweet enough to compliment the juicy strawberries and moist enough to soak up all the sugary flavored berry juices.
A grand attraction in its own right, Parkesdale Farm Market caters to the town's love of berries with our very own Strawberry Throne. Sit, put on your crown, hold your roses and enjoy the chance to be Queen or King for the day. Enjoy a break from the hustle and bustle by enjoying our fresh milkshakes, shortcakes and other dessert concoctions in one of our tropical garden greenhouses.
